[2001] EWCA Crim 1

Legal privilege as to the substance of communications between a solicitor and a client was not waived by a defendant saying in evidence that he had been advised by his solicitor to give a no-comment interview. Where a defendant made an assertion, the truth of which was critical to his defence, there was no need for a Lucas direction.
